Sunday Bible Study in Lent
Fr. Cobb leads a Bible Study at 10 a.m. every Sunday in Lent, in the Parish Library.
THE SUNDAY READINGS IN LENT follow two tracks: the first lesson presents an overview of the history of salvation in the Old Testament, more or less along the pattern of the readings at the Paschal Vigil. The Epistles, rather than the usual pattern of being read in course, are chosen to relate to the first readings.
In Year A, the Gospels—after Matthew's account of the Temptation—are all taken from John's Gospel, and all of them are conversations between Jesus and one or more persons, leading to the raising of Lazarus on the Fifth Sunday of Lent as Passiontide begins, and finding their ultimate conclusion in the encounter between Jesus and Mary Magdalene in the Garden on Easter morning. —Fr. David Cobb
During Lent, Fr. Cobb will offer some perspectives on the lessons as they relate both to the movement of the Church Year and to their larger setting in the Scripture, with reflection on how they speak to our faith and life.
